Re: [RC] [RC] foot pain - Raven

Would a trailrunning shoe have a stiffer sole and give moresupport?

Are you planning on running trails or simply forward running ...such
as on a treadmill or street?   For simple forward running...the shoes
are very flexible and provide very little lateral support

A trail running shoe will be stiffer and will also provide lateral
support for the side to side movements a foot makes when running
outside/trails.  I would suggest you visit a local running store for
more help. If you ride in safety stirrups, you will be able to ride in
non heel shoes.

Or maybe ask a Ride & Tie rider/runner...which shoes work for that
sport.  I started running about 6 weeks ago, and discovered that the
correct shoe for the terrain/surface you are on...is very important.
Good luck!
